Msn Messenger 4.5 requires a NAT with UPnP NAT traversal support -- no
manipulation of ports will solve the problem -- a number of SOHO router
makers have committed to support ( and are apparently almost ready to ship
product) but the the only thing that supports in now that I know of is XP
You may be facing a secondary problem if the DSL modem is also a NAT -- DSL
providers that use NATs have so far not committed ( or have indicated that
will not support) UPnP NAT traversal.
